The Laurel Mill rec area is a few miles outside of Ridgway, PA along Township Road T-307 and about 2-3 miles from my family's deer hunting camp. I've seen this trailhead for decades before I left PA and never did any of the trails. Now that I've been bit by the hiking bug since moving to AZ, doing this trail system was on my must-do list. This hike consisted of the northern loop and the half mile leg to the southern loop. Total mileage was about 6.6 miles. The tree cover provided some excellent shade, but also some problems keeping a signal on my GPS. Most of the trails here (as in about all of PA this time of year) are overgrown. The trails are very wide (usually some former service road) and easy to follow, but the grass and plants in many spots can be waist high or higher. By the end, my feet were soaked from all the vegetation I walked thru. The northeast corner of this loop goes by the Ridgway Reservoir, a spot where I spent many days of my childhood fishing. Most of the trails on this system are pretty level, with some moderate hills in spots.
